Firstly, a very Happy New Year to you. May 2013 be healthly, happy, prosperous and dry!
As 2013 gets underway, so does our winter and spring programme. January is largely being spent in the Algarve with the 19th January Golf & Coaching Week, which is followed by the Algarve Golf Week, which commences on the 26th January. The Golf & Coaching Week is now full, but there are still places available on the Algarve Golf Week.
Asia is the destination in February, Thailand to be precise. A three week tour, with weeks in Hua Hin, Chiang Mai and Phuket. The Tour can be taken as a three week trip, or broken down into individual weeks. There are still places available on all three weeks, should the temptation for some winter sun prove too great to resist.
In March, we make a welcome return to Cyprus, a month later than last year in the expectation of better weather. We are running two Golf & Coaching Weeks at the Aphrodite Hills Resort, from the 9th March and the 16th March respectively. The week of the 16th March is almost full, but there are spaces available on the 9th March week. Barney Puttick, one of the finest teaching Pro’s in the Country, is also hosting a Golf & Coaching Week in the Algarve for the week of the 2nd – 9th March. Furthermore, the UK tuition season will also start from the Easter weekend, details of which will be available shortly.
April presents a combination of an Algarve Golf & Coaching Week (6th – 13th April, a ‘Golf Week with Tuition Clinics’ at the La Cala Resort, in the Costa del Sol, Spain, before the always popular Benalup Week, which starts on the 20th April. There are plenty of places available for the Portugal week, but both La Cala and Benalup are filling up; hence if you wanted to book these, please do so soon.
In May, we return to fabulous Italy for two Golf Weeks. The first week is a Rome Golf Week. We will be staying in the City and playing some of the top courses in and around Rome, as well as being treated to some wonderful sightseeing. For the second week, we move to Tuscany, exploring in particualr Siena and Florence. A real treat in store with these two weeks!
As I write June is still ‘work in progress,’ but watch this space! July though sees a welcome return to British Columbia. A two week Tour from the 6th – 20th July, staying in the Okanagan Valley, Whistler and Vancouver Island.
Details for August and September will be pubished soon, which will involve Tours to Ireland and France. October will again involve three weeks in Spain, one week at La Cala and two at Benalup. From the 1st October for 10 days we are also running a Golf Tour to Mauritius. This Tour proved hugely popular a few years ago and we have an exciting itinerary in place for this Tour.
November involves our annual pilgrimage to South Africa. This year we are taking a different approach, visiting our favourite areas, but staying in high class Guest Houses, as opposed to resort hotels. The Tour will end with a visit to the Limpopo region of South Africa, which we have not visited before.
The year will then draw to a close with our traditional Christmas and New Year weeks.
Thanks again to all who have booked and enquired this season and I look forward to seeing you in the months ahead.
